GMC K2500 A/C Repair

Few things are worse than a broken car air conditioner on a hot summer day. Is that a hot stove? Nope, just your steering wheel. That puddle in the driver’s seat? Sweat. Ugh. You wipe your brow and wonder, "Who can fix the A/C in my GMC K2500?" Easy — Firestone Complete Auto Care! We’ve got experience with GMC vehicles, and our trained technicians can identify and repair issues with 1996 GMC A/C systems. Bring your GMC K2500 to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care

During this initial A/C performance check, we’ll look at the state of your 1996 GMC K2500’s A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test. If any signs point to a possible leak, we’ll send a special U/V dye through the system, or use something called a “sniffer.” What’s a “sniffer,” you ask? It’s a specially designed machine that’s used on parts of your GMC K2500 A/C system to identify points where refrigerant fumes could be escaping the system. If there's a leak, we'll find it and fix it.

K2500 A/C Recharge

While your 1996 GMC K2500’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. To do this, one of our technicians will remove the refrigerant in your A/C system (if there is even any left to remove). Then, they’ll perform an evacuation (also known as a discharge) on the entire system per GMC guidelines. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant and once the technician tests the cool blast for themselves, you’re all set. We want you to be comfortable in your car, so we train our technicians to perform 1996 GMC K2500 A/C recharges.

Troubleshooting GMC K2500 A/C Problems

Warm air isn't the only GMC K2500 A/C problem you may encounter. Other common A/C problems include weak airflow, which could be caused by mold or mildew buildup, a loose hose, an old ventilation fan, or a compromised seal. If you notice that your A/C system’s air is cold at first, then quickly goes warm, this may be due to a clogged expansion valve, faulty compressor clutch, blown fuse, or leak. Are you breathing in some “interesting” new odors in your 1996 GMC K2500? That could be the result of a dirty cabin air filter (an easy fix!) or a moldy evaporator case. Our trained technicians will do what they can to solve your A/C problems. We’re here to help you get back on the road in your K2500 — without all the sweat puddles!

1996 GMC K2500 A/C System FAQs

  • Can I make my K2500 air conditioner colder? Park in the shade whenever you can, and use a reflective sunshade in the windshield when you’re parked. If you’re the only one in the car, close all the vents except the ones that point toward you. Give the system the final boost it needs with an A/C performance check and recharge from Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Why is my K2500 A/C blowing hot air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • How does my A/C system get a leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your K2500’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
